OK, I have to admit, it's a bit creepy, especially the celebrities you're so used to seeing on television or in ads. But when in my life-time am I ever going to shake Bill Clinton's hands? Or give a big hug to Yao Ming? Yep, you can walk right up to them and most people I reckon go there to pose stupidly with various wax figures, which is exactly what I did! Some figures bear more resemblance to the real thing, and some others look like mannequins with dead raccoons on their heads. All in all, an interesting place to visit, but for a price that is very steep considering cost of living in Shanghai (120 yuan). You can flash your university ID and get a student discount (90 yuan).
